WRI 2930: Methods for Writing Assistants


From Dr. Moe's syllabus:

You will spend the entire year working on a single project.  

The goal of this project is to create something future staff can use in their own practice.  

Your pedagogy project can be a paper, an addition to our website, a handout, or some other resource for the Studio.  

Fall quarter, you will turn in a project proposal: 2-3 pages where you discuss something you encountered your first quarter at the Studio and that you’d like to research the remainder of the year.   It should be something pedagogically troubling and compelling.  

Midway through winter quarter, you will turn in an annotated bibliography related to your proposal, and at the end of the quarter, a literature review that points toward what your contribution will be to the discussion already going on about your topic.  

Spring quarter, you will see your pedagogy project through multiple drafts toward completion.   New staff will start a pedagogy project from square one; returning staff can either start another new project, or continue on with their previous pedagogy project in some way.
